HC Deb 24 April 1871 vol 205 cc1583-4

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether it is intended to complete the survey of North Wales (other than the mineral districts), upon any larger scale than the existing one-inch survey; and, if not, whether he can hold out any hope of the re-verification of the roads, &c, as laid down in that survey, parts of which contain errors of more than thirty years' standing?


, in reply, said, he could not give a precise answer, because he had not yet received replies to inquiries which he directed to be made some time ago as to the mode in which the survey was being conducted. If it were to go on at the rate at which it had progressed hitherto, it would be several years before the survey of the part of Wales referred to by the hon. Member would be completed; it was desirable to complete promptly the survey of the mineral districts.
